Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two England

Series devoted to saving treasured heirlooms from the scrapheap, restoring them to their former glory and maybe even making some money at auction.

Elegant Chatsworth House is soon witness to some frenetic activity as Eric Knowles and his team of brilliant restorers continue their valiant efforts to save your heirlooms from the ravages of time.

Tim Akers does everything he can to revive a wonderful Victorian writing box. Ceramics expert Roger Hawkins grapples with an extraordinary 19th century ornament depicting a Japanese fisherman under attack from an octopus, and Lucia Scalisi meets a totally different beast – a painting of a short horn cow that might carry a very hefty price tag.

Elsewhere, paper conservator Louise Drover faces a mammoth task too. She has to resurrect a badly scarred 200-year-old set of volumes charting the history of Rome. But will her efforts be rewarded with success when the books come up for auction? Show less
